A small world.

Hi Aussie Gobbiner.

Just a quick one.
Where abouts in the Illawarra do you live?
Its just that I am familiar with that area myself from back in the 1970's.

Re: Photo Cropshop.

Hi Len, live down at Albion Park Rail near the railway station on the shores of Lake Illawarra. Lived here all my short life ( 40+ a few more! ).... Mum & Dad and siblings all come from ossy.. they immigrated here back in 1956... Didn't stay at the hostels though, stayed in a caravan on some farmers property in Dapto... Though I think my aunty & uncle stayed at the hostel for a time, I shall ask the old man about it.... unreal isn't it! Cheers Dave

Re: Photo Cropshop.

Len, you wouldn't recognise the place now! When you were here Wollongong was known as The City of Greater Wollongong.... Now it's a city and the little council of Shellharbour is also now a city....

Re: Photo Cropshop.

I can't believe Shellharbour is a city it was so small. My mate's father kept a boat there and we used to go fishing. Have they extended out into the ocean?
They must be including Oakflats, Warilla and Albian Park. Into the city of Shellharbour.
Can you tell me are there any local forums in the Illawarra?
I must go to bed it's 1.00am . Up at 6 30.
Have a nice day mate.

ps
If you visit my site again it would be brill if you would sign my guest book .

Re: Photo Cropshop.

Shellharbour as you know it is now Shellharbour Township and the city encompasses all those suburbs you mentioned plus more new ones! I don't know of any forums in the illawarra... only my pigeon forum ....
Cheers mate

Aussie Gobbiner

Just a thought, do you have any recent photos of your location you can put on here?. I'm sure that all of us here would be interested to see them. Lake Illawarra (The Illawarra)is a nice place.

Re: What a small world.

Yep... I'll get some together and work out how to put them up here... Len, is there anyone place in particular that you remember vividly that I can go and take a snap of so you can see the changes?

Re: What a small world.

This is me old dad... 83 years old this year, legally blind and still doing his woodwork. An old gobbin and WWII fighter pilot (Hurricanes) ... Born at 154 New Lane, Ossy, 1921.... Anyone recognise him.... Before immigrating to Australia he lived at Brown Cow Cottage, 21 Grove st, Wham Brook Cottage, Jack House, Hoyle Bottom, 3 Eagle St and finally at 56 Trinity St... he certainly got around!
